freedb.org ~ Metadata Lookup Service


Sadly, this service was terminated as of March 2020, apparently due to corporate indifference.

freedb was a free CD and music database service to look up textual metadata about music, audio or data CDs. This was done by a client which queried the freedb database. As a result, the client displayed the artist, CD title, track list and some additional information. Clients are for example CD players, CD rippers and CD burning software.
